I've already sent a copy to two other women that I know.
There is depth and kindness in Pixie's words. The biggest revelation to me (so far) is that boundaries go both ways, and that I may need them to protect the ones I love.
Pixie Lighthorse's Boundaries & Protection offers tidbits of wisdom to help you put those fences in place, in a healthy, non-threatening manner. Organized into one-page essays by theme, Boundaries & Protection is an easy and accessible reference to help us navigate, heal and strengthen our relationships with friends, family, children, significant others. This thought-provoking gem is a book I will return to time and again when I feel the need to step back and reflect upon my dealings with others.
If you are not sure if Pixie's work will resonate with you, seek her out on Instagram where her words and images beautifully illustrate her dedication to sharing her magic and medicine, as well as her previous books, Prayers of Honoring and Prayers of Honoring Voice.
As a therapist who primarily works with people with eating disorders I spend a lot of time helping people learn how to set healthy boundaries, become more assertive, less avoidant, and less people-pleasing. Boundaries and Protection is definitely a book I will be sharing with my clients. One of my favorite parts of the book is the "language prompts" at the end that provide lots of specific suggestions for how to communicate clearly and effectively, with truth and respect--both for yourself and the other person. I highly recommend this book to other therapists!
